F-Secure Uninstallation Tool.exe and Easy Clean Beta

Does anyone try the F-Secure's UninstallationTool.exe?

 

I did try out these tools and found that it cannot remove the Encrypted Quarantine Folder...

 

No matter how I try to delete the folder it won't remove the File directory completely!

Well there seems to be  a new Beta for F-Secure's  Easy Clean.

Hi,

 

we use it almost daily at one of our customers :-)

 

Why do you want to iuninstall?

What Version of F-Secure was installed?

Try in safe mode.

Re: F-Secure Uninstallation Tool.exe and Easy Clean Beta

Ran 2012 version, very happy with it. However, after extending the member period for another year, everything went wrong. First it told me that I had 10 days left after giving the update code.  Oh by the way, google chrome also crashed al of a sudden... Uninstalled the f-secure, loaded a testversion instead and after that I tried to enter the code again to upgrade: "This code is allready in use".... (no kidding). Did a system recovery to an earlier date. In the mean time the system told me while installing f-secure again that there were conflicitng versions and if I wanted to have it taken away. Sure, as long as I can get my program running like before, go ahead. Install finished, reboot and voila, No f-secure to be found??? So, decided to take care of deletion myself. But no way mr. Can't find data so no deletion possible. WTF to that! Aparrently there is still a version 2009 in my system but I cannot get rid of this. Somewhere along the line I think I saw the possibility passing by on the screen which said I had to remove it through a special program provided by f-secure to delete it in the right way. Nope, can't find it on the help pages. So... who can help me out here?

Hi Rusli,

 

Uninstallation tool Version 3.0 build 1430 and later doesn't remove the F-Secure Quarantine Repository by default any more.

Re: F-Secure Uninstallation Tool.exe and Easy Clean Beta

Hi Rusli,

 

Just to clarify. This is not a 'problem' but actual (desgined) feature of the uninstallation tool.

If there are files that you can't remove from your system, always try to do a safe mode which is more convenient on removing different types of files.

Well F-Secure need to remove it or else if a user intends to change his mind he need to use other antivirus software vendor to install it, he will face some difficulty problems.

 

F-Secure need to issue a fix for this.

Re: F-Secure Uninstallation Tool.exe and Easy Clean Beta

Hi

 

Did that, nothing works on safe mode.

 

Like I said F-Secure need to fix this thing...

 

It's Encrypted folder for Quarantine!

Re: F-Secure Uninstallation Tool.exe and Easy Clean Beta

Hi Rusli,

 

As I said before -- this is an actual designed feature. There's a command line switch for the uninstallation tool for removing the Quarantine Repository as well. You can obtain it by contacting our support.
